Lincoln Blockheads

“These are embarrassing, avoidable, and credibility-destroying errors. That’s a shame, because many of the names suggested by the committee are out-and-out no-brainers; if engaged earnestly, most San Franciscans could probably be convinced to accept a lot of these changes. But that didn’t happen, and this is what you get when you perfunctorily cut-and-paste material from sources that would not be acceptable for a junior high school oral report, and then misstate and misinterpret even that paltry material.” Joe Eskenazi: The San Francisco School District’s renaming debacle has been a historic travesty. (Seriously, anyone who voted to remove Lincoln’s name from a school building should be forced to step down. This is beyond stupid.)
